It’s no secret that I am an Olsen-twins-style connoisseur after having documented their iconic outfits for over a decade on Olsens Anonymous. I have their looks cataloged in my brain, and I am always ready and excited to break them down.
One of the biggest hurdles I’ve heard many complain about when trying to emulate Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen’s style is the cost. I get it—they live almost exclusively in pieces from their designer label The Row along with other high-end designer and vintage items to round out their wardrobes. The truth is, however, that it doesn’t take much to crack their style code and do so affordably. What’s really in our favor is the fact that they create such beautiful pieces that other brands race to design near-identical dupes at a fraction of the cost.
It’s all about creating a foundation of budget-friendly basics in black, white, and neutral colors that have a luxe feel and oversize proportions. Think minimalist pieces like crisp button-down shirts, sleek black bags, practical yet modern shoes, and much more. Ahead, I rounded up 29 pieces under $150 to achieve their chic, minimalist look.
